What must inhabitants of the lands of Scandinavia, Britain, Ireland, North Russia, Canada have done during the younger dryas?

https://www.repository.cam.ac.uk/bitstream/handle/... .

"The Younger Dryas (around 12,900 to 11,700 years BP[2]) was a return to glacial conditions after the Late Glacial Interstadial, which temporarily reversed the gradual climatic warming after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) started receding around 20,000 BP. It is named after an indicator genus, the alpine-tundra wildflower Dryas octopetala, as its leaves are occasionally abundant in late glacial, often minerogenic-rich sediments, such as the lake sediments of Scandinavia.".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Younger_Dryas

How did Brits, Scandinavians, Russians, Canadians survive this?

Did they migrate South?

If not, what did they survive on, and what did they hunt?

Also, what effects did the younger dryas have on other cultures? Did it cause opposite effects in the Southern hemisphere that experience a heatwave?

Did it lead to the expansion of desert regions in  Africa and elsewhere?

What were the knock on global effects?

What Islands sank due to the rising sea levels?

Did it cause wars and fighting?

Update:

Also, whilst Geologists and Scientists are looking at a South Eastward movement out of those regions, some historians and scholars appear to think it was a North Westerly movement in to those regions.

For what purpose was there North Westerly movement of peoples?
