Ratanakiri is divided into 9 districts covering 240 villages and approximately 100,000 people. Of these,
65% are minority hill tribes comprising groups such as the Jarai, Tampoen, Kui, etc. with only about 5% of the people literate. Over the past five years, international monitoring groups estimate that 120% of the land has been appropriated through land sales and concessions for logging, mining, and commercial agriculture.
