We study actions by higher-rank abelian groups on quotients of semisimple Lie groups with finite center. First, we consider actions arising from the flows of two commuting elements of the Lie algebra - one nilpotent and the other semisimple. Second, we consider actions arising from two commuting unipotent flows that come from an embedded copy of $\overline{\SL(2,\RR)}^{k} \times \overline{\SL(2,\RR)}^{l}$. In both cases we show that any smooth $\RR$-valued cocycle over the action is cohomologous to a constant cocycle via a smooth transfer function. These results build on theorems of D. Mieczkowski, where the same is shown for actions on $(\SL(2,\RR) \times \SL(2,\RR))$/Γ.
