The area covered by the agreement is located on the banks of the Segura River and has notable environmental values .

In the case of the Almadenes Canyon, it is a Special Conservation Area (Sierras and Vega Alta del Segura and Ríos Alhárabe and Moratalla (ES6200004)) and a Special Protection Area for Birds (Sierra del Molino, Quípar Reservoir and Llanos del Cagitán) forming part of the Natura 2000 Network.
