    The same as the difference between cooked meat and cooking meat.

    The -ing form indicates the activity is still happening. The -ed indicates the action is completed.

    Developing countries are still in the process of developing. Developed countries are done developing.

    Basically, a developed country is one of the rich ones with many industries, where the standard of living is quite high. A developing country, on the other hand, is a poor country trying to increase its industries and become more advanced in general.
