Determining the features of age friendly for city development. Journal of the Malaysian Institute of Planners, 19 (2). pp. 213-225. ISSN 0128-0945 (2021)


Malaysia is projected to become an aging nation in the year 2035. As a significant fraction of the elderly is anticipated to be residing in urban areas, therefore it is
critically important for local and relevant government agencies to prepare the city environment for the increasing aging population. Age-friendly city is a concept emerged to address the urban aged population through various strategies. Although a significant number of studies were conducted on age-friendly cities, nevertheless, city features that are important to achieve the state of an age friendly city environment remain a subject for exploration. Therefore, this study primarily aims to document the development of the age-friendly features in
various countries, in understanding common features that underlie its implementation. The research applies the deductive research approach that includes descriptive and content analyses. A total of 60 important features were
commonly used across the report. The findings of the study provide significance as a key input for developing embedding age-friendly city development in Malaysia.
