Former National Farmers Federation head Wendy Craik has been named chair of the Climate Change Authority board, following the resignation of Bernie Fraser last month.

The federal government has appointed four others, including Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry CEO Kate Carnell, Howard government transport minister John Sharp and Frontier Economics energy expert Danny Price and BidEnergy chief executive Stuart Allinson.

Quorum has been restored to the board, which was lost after the departure of Fraser and the failure of the government to replace other members who had left over the previous 18 months.
