On CCTA ceasing activity, 1964-1965, the functions it performed in the Joint Commission were gradually absorbed by Organization of African Unity (OAU). New Statutes reflecting this change in sponsorship were accepted by resolution 1/59 of FAO Council, 1972. First Session: Sep 1974. Ceased to exist.
