This study examines how the idea of having to adapt to a
changing climate influences recent Rwandan environmental
politics and the relations with international organizations
and NGOs. By conceptualizing adaptation as matter of
translation, processes of resignification and network
building are highlighted, taking broader social
developments, historical trajectories and the makeup of
Rwandan international relations into consideration.

Based on analyses of a variety of primary and secondary
data, the main findings add to a more detailed understanding
of rationalizing, planning, and implementing climate change
