Can actions led by community groups (NGO’s, social organisations, citizens’ associations, etc.) be considered as private sector

Can actions led by community groups (NGO’s, social organisations, citizens’ associations, etc.) be considered as private sector
Yes. Many of the most vulnerable fisheries areas lack the physical, human and social capital required to attract private investors. In these cases civil society initiatives of a more social and environmental kind may act as essential drivers of longer term change, making areas less dependent on public subsidies. These kinds of actions naturally find their space in a fisheries area's strategy and should be supported.
