1 May 1974, by resolution 3302 (S-VI) of General Assembly of the A-XA3375 - United Nations (UN). In resolution 3356 (XXIX) of 18 Dec 1974, the Assembly further decided that the Special Fund would operate as an organ of the General Assembly. Operations commenced 1 Jan 1975. Activities were suspended 'ad interim', 19 Dec 1978, because of unfavourable outlook with regard to contributions, the function of the Board of Governors being assumed by the United Nations General Assembly. In 1981, the General Assembly decided to continue performing these functions, within the context of its consideration of the item on development and international economic cooperation, pending consideration of the question in 1983. However, as of Jun 1996, no further action has been taken. Note: this is not the same as a previous H-XH0595 - United Nations Special Fund, set up prior to 1960 and a forerunner of E-XE3382 - UNDP.
