    (feed) increased people

    As for solutions, in developing countries' case,..Exploiting substitute resources will make many (much) food. So that(it) will be able to accommodate (feed) increased people.
    ======================================
    In this case, is it better to say "feed"?

    You need a space before each open parenthesis.

    I did. So does the underlined sound natural?

    Re: (feed) increased people

    I think "accommodate (an/the) increasing population" would sound more natural. I believe there are other variants, though.

    Re: (feed) increased people

    I don't like, 'in developing countries' case'.

    I would prefer, 'In the case of developing countries'.

    People don't increase. The number of people (or anything else that's countable) may.

    In this case, is it better to say "feed"? Yes.
    Use smaller words.

    Use complete sentences.

    Only use a pronoun when it is clear what noun it refers to.

    Study the rules of spacing.
