This article examines the nature of Crisis Management and Environmentalism. It shows that while different, they share a number of overlapping processes. As a result, the synergies between them can be taken advantage of in order to maximize their impact and minimize the costs of implementing separate stand-alone programs. Unless both are managed as system-wide activities, they cannot succeed. This article presents a systems framework for Crisis Management and applies it to the major environmental disaster at Bhopal.
