Everyone should have access to clean drinking water. But while progress has been made, billions of people across the world still lack safe water sanitation. So, what can we do to change things? Our daily investigation into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals with Greg Foot looks at clean water and sanitation with Kirsty Upton from the British Geological Survey and Alex Hyslop from Kohler Mira.


Alex Hyslop is the Head of Product Marketing at Mira Showers. With over 10 years’ experience in Product Development, Alex is passionate about designing products that respond to the ever-increasing demand from our customers for sustainable products. Responsible for leading key projects that have introduced new innovations to the market, Alex has lots of experience in the value that technology can play in the future to address the global concern of water scarcity.

Kirsty Upton is a hydrogeologist with the British Geological Survey. She has a degree in geology and a PhD in water resources engineering from Imperial College London. Kirsty has worked on a range of multi-disciplinary research projects to understand how groundwater can contribute to safe and sustainable water supplies in the UK and Africa. She was a lead author of the Africa Groundwater Atlas and recently contributed to a book on Geology and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), leading the chapter on clean water and sanitation (SDG6).
