The purpose of the study is to answer the question of what impact natural disasters have on the economies of countries, and if the answer is positive, what is the nature of these effects. The objectives of this work include such actions as definition of disaster concepts, their classification and impact on the economy on categories. In addition, within the framework of this study, the task is to create an econometric model that would answer questions about the existence of influence and its characteristics. Within the framework of the econometric study, factors are determined and the model is evaluated. In the framework of this study, qualitative methods such as data analysis and research were considered. And the econometric model of MNCs is constructed as a quantitative one. As a result, it was noted that there is a division of catastrophes into natural and manmade. Natural ones, in turn, is divided into an extraordinary event, disaster and catastrophe, which in the final analysis is the stages of one major cataclysm. As for the effects on the economy, it was found to have been affected by zero, negative and stimulating factors. The result of the construction of the econometric model of MNEs is the conclusion that natural disasters have a negative effect on the economy, and that they are the most affected by the level of risk and the level of the country's development. The last chapter provides mechanisms to fight against cataclysms at different levels and specific examples of programs conducted on the territory of the European state.
