Short summary
The ever-evolving landscapes in the African, Caribbean and Pacific regions should be monitored for land cover changes. The Global Land Monitoring Service of the Copernicus Programme, and in particular the Hot Spot Monitoring activity, developed a satellite-imagery-based workflow to monitor such areas. Here, we present a total of 852 025 km2 of areas mapped with up to 32 land cover classes. Thematic land cover and land cover change maps, as well as validation datasets, are presented.
