    Disasters happen regularly and it is essential to learn from them in order to prevent new ones. This paper presents a new graphical representation, the Crisis Tree Analysis (CTA), to map the combination of basic events leading to a crisis. Then, the criticality of each event is assessed using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which permits to prioritise tangible and intangible basic events on the same scale. The technique is briefly illustrated with the Bhopal disaster.
