The first sentence is the more correct one. 'The past four years' refers to the time period leading up to the present ( 2015 - 2019), so you need a present perfect tense.

I would use : In the past ..... Both sentences are correct. The use of present perfect means that the crisis ist still there in the present. "saw" means it was in the past, but today it is over.
