    Re: in developing countries' case

    How about "...where developing countries are concerned..."?

    I would just say: "In developing countries, we have to find new resources."

    Calling a country (or person) "backwards" is insulting. Better words might be:

    - underdeveloped
    - poor
    - over-crowded
    - hungry
    - Third World
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
