The need to create sustainable and liveable urban development and settlement should be the main agenda of urban planning. This will ensure that every walk of life can enjoy more harmonious, healthy, happy and peaceful living; well preserved and sustainable environment, together with more comfortable and efficient urban environment as their place to live, work, learn and play. Future cities need to emphasize on the integration and formation of a unified, caring and well interacted community’s system and social structure; generation of productive and resilient urban economy together with the adoption of green practices which will support the adaptation of climate change through the use of efficient and effective cities’ energy, water and solid waste management. In other words, future cities need to meet the aspirations to create liveable cities 'for men' (human-centered cities), empowered and generate new integrated values ​ in the aspects of social, economic, environment and urban governance towards managing the increasingly complex urban development process and challenges. The implementation of 'future cities' concept and initiative is consistent with the objective and aspirations of the Rio+20 Conference (the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio de Janeiro 2012) which outlines the roadmap for 'The Future We Want' associated with aspects of social justice, environmental protection and eco-system and the implementation of the 'green economy'. The conference also sets out proposals and measure's solution globally for long-term on the issues related to natural disasters, energy and water resources, and food security. In Malaysian context, this goal can be realized through the adoption and implementation of the ‘sustainable future cities' concept and initiatives in the process of urban planning and development.

Framework for MALAYSIAN SUSTAINABLE FUTURE CITIES To support global efforts to overcome the phenomena of climate change and global warming, to solve the local environmental issues as well as to ensure our development policies and planning initiatives be implemented effectively, the FDTCP, through R&D Division, has developed conceptual framework for Malaysian sustainable future cities (Bandar Sejahtera Malaysia). The framework is in line with Sustainable Development concept that seeks to balance social, economic and environmental aspects. It is hoped that this conceptual framework can promote and strengthen the social inclusiveness, productivity in economy and green city environment in developing our cities.

 For social inclusiveness, the Malaysian Sustainable Future Cities will address the aspects of social cohesion, caring and interactive community, healthy and happy community, safe living and ensure the needs of the elderly, child and disabled groups well taken care in our cities.  For productive economy, we will ensure resilient in urban economy, address the issues of affordable and comfortable housing that currently become the main agenda of Malaysian Government and promote the concepts of smart and green city, transit-oriented development and mixed-use development.  For green city environment, in addition to other programs and initiatives by various parties in Malaysia, such as Green Building Index (GBI) and Low Carbon Cities Framework (by Ministry of Green Technology, Energy and Water), the focus will be given to efficient energy and renewable energy, efficient and prudence water usage, efficient solid waste management , pedestrian and cyclist friendly, green transportation system, food security, green neighbourhood, green lifestyles and promote green buildings and infrastructures. To realise the concept and initiatives of ‘Malaysian Sustainable Future Cities’, all city stakeholders need to work together to think, explore and developed suitable models to be implemented in Malaysian cities in the future.

GREEN NEIGHBOURHOOD INITIATIVES AWARD Since 2011, the Federal Department of Town and Country Planning, Peninsular Malaysia has, in conjunction with the celebration of World Town Planning Day, presented the Green Neighbourhood Initiatives Award to local authorities which have successfully implemented five green neighbourhood initiatives in their areas of jurisdiction. The purpose of the award is to encourage local authorities to implement those initiatives as part of the nation’s efforts towards achieving the target of reducing 40% of the carbon intensity by 2020 compared to 2005 level. The five green neighbourhood initiatives are: Provision of pedestrian walkways Provision of bicycle lanes Rainwater harvesting system Waste composting Community farming For the year 2013, fifteen local authorities have received the awards for the green initiatives as. Walking and cycling will reduce the use of motorised vehicles, subsequently reducing carbon emissions. Rainwater harvesting system is to reduce the demand for treated water which directly reduces the need for water treatment process. Waste composting will reduce generation of organic solid waste, thereby reducing the need to dispose of waste. Community farming is a community activity which will promote closer relationship among residents and reduce vehicle trips made by residents to buy vegetables from markets or shops. The ultimate goal is to reduce carbon emissions through the implementation of all the five initiatives.

MURNInets : Sustainable City Award 2012 The Federal Department of Town and Country Planning, Peninsular Malaysia (FDTCP) is a local point for the implementation of Malaysian Urban-Rural National Indicators Network for Sustainable Development (MURNInets). This is in line with the department’s vision to be a “Leader in Town and Country Planning towards achieving a Quality and Sustainable Living Environment by 2020”, as well as the FDTCP’s Universal Planning and Development Doctrine produced in 1998, and the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government’s (MUHLG) commitment in promoting sustainable communities. FDTCP had introduced Malaysia Urban Indicators Network (MURNInet) in 1998 as an innovative system to determine the sustainability level of urban areas by developing a set of urban indicators. MURNInet was conceived as a program to assess the performance and level of sustainability of Malaysian towns. 56 indicators were identified to be used to rank the sustainability level of towns when it was first conceived. MURNInets has been recognised as a very important tool to measure sustainability of towns and cities in the country by the National Physical Planning Council (NPPC) chaired by the Prime Minister of Malaysia. NPPC is regularly updated on the status of MURNInets implementation as a check on the efforts taken by all local authorities in Malaysia towards attaining sustainable development. MURNInets was officially launched by the MUHLG on 7 November 2012 during the World Town Planning Day 2012 International Conference. In year 2013, a total of 109 from 151 local authorities across the country participated in MURNInets which was monitored by the National and the State MURNInets Operations Centre. This clearly shows that city administrators in local authorities understand and accept the importance of implementing MURNInets as a tool to measure the achievement of urban development in their respective areas. From the 109 local authorities, only 54 local authorities managed to complete 36 indicators and be evaluated through MURNInets Portal.

One of the yardsticks employed as part of MURNInets is the 'Happiness Index' that evaluates the public’s wellbeing and is being implemented by the FDTCP for 151 local authorities in Malaysia. As a result, 32 local authorities achieved sustainable levels of more than 80% and were awarded MURNInets Sustainable City 2012 in conjunction with World Town Planning Day 2013 International Conference on 12 November 2013. Malaysia is aiming to achieve sustainable urban development in its cities. Since early 2002, many efforts were made by various authorities at the federal, state and local levels, such as introducing the concept of a healthy city, liveable city, harmonious city and many other concepts in the planning and development of towns and cities in the country. The sustainable development concept relates the development objectives with planning that places emphasis on the preservation and conservation of environmental resources without jeopardising the present and future generations to meet their social, cultural and spiritual needs as well as their economic needs. The evaluation of the performance of towns and cities towards achieving sustainable development and the well-being of the people can be done through the implementation of MURNInets which uses a set of indicators that reflects their sustainability levels.

Award recipients pose with YBhg. Dato’ Seri Arpah binti Abdul Razak, Secretary General of the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government during 2013 World Town Planning Day International Conference held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 12 November 2013

Overview of Global Aging Trend and Planning for the Aged in Malaysia Aging is the process of people growing older. According to United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), 2012, “A population is classified as ageing when older people become a proportionately larger share of the total population”. Population aging is a situation that has been occurring in many developed and developing countries over the past decades. In 2012, every one in nine persons in the world is aged 60 years and above. It is projected to increase to one in every five by year 2050. Around the world, two persons celebrate their sixtieth birthday every second – an annual total of almost 58 million sixtieth birthdays (UNDESA, 2012). Malaysia is moving towards becoming an aging society by year 2020. The number of senior citizens in Malaysia (60 years and above) is estimated to reach 3.4 million people or 10.6% of the total population. By 2030 it is expected to increase up to 13.6% due to declining fertility rate and increasing population life expectancy. This scenario calls for the preparedness of infrastructure and amenities to support the growing number of elderly (Department of Statistics, Malaysia). Malaysia will join the rank of other Asian countries like Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and China, which by then, will already be aged societies.

World Scenario : Proportion of Population Aged 60 or over in 2012 and 2050

The Malaysia National Policy for the Elderly is the government's commitment to create self-sufficient, dignified and respected senior citizens who optimise their potential through healthy aging. Under this policy, an action plan has been drawn up to implement the objectives, strategies and programmes of the policy. Under this action plan, one of the actions taken is the preparation of the Physical Planning Guidelines for the Elderly by the Department of Town and Country Planning Peninsular Malaysia (DTCP), under the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government. The main purpose of the guidelines is to plan for the types of settlements for senior citizens to age actively, such as retirement villages and care centres, the relevant supporting facilities and social programmes. The guidelines include planning principles, design standards, minimum requirement for elderly-friendly facilities and also related social activities such as community farming and lifelong learning.

Half of humanity – 3.5 billion people – live in cities today. By 2030, almost 60 per cent of the world’s population will live in urban areas. 95 per cent of urban expansion in the next decades will take place in developing world. 828 million people live in slums today and the number keeps rising. The world’s cities occupy just 2 per cent of the Earth’s land, but account for 60 – 80 per cent of energy consumption and 75 per cent of carbon emissions. Rapid urbanization is exerting pressure on fresh water supplies, sewage, the living environment, and public health. Source :
