Developing countries, particularly small island development states (SIDS), dependent on tourism have already experienced a precipitous collapse in their revenues given that international travel has come to a halt.

These losses make it more difficult to pay for the imported food required for survival in these countries. in the food supply bring death by starvation to large numbers. Other, less dramatic characteristics of poverty include inadequate diet, poor health, short life expectancy, and illiteracy. For these reasons, reformers in developing countries feel a sense of urgency not felt by their counterparts in rich countries.
